A new political group, Network for Governor Agbu Kefas Continuity of Good Governance, was launched to bolster the developmental initiatives of Governor Agbu Kefas.


The event, coinciding with Governor Kefas's one-year anniversary in office, highlighted the Governor's significant achievements and called for continued support from the people of Taraba State.


In his address, the Network's chairman, Umar Garba Allasure, expressed gratitude to those present at the launch.

Former Deputy Speaker of the Taraba State House of Assembly, Hon. Hassan Abubakar, underscored the non-partisan nature of the movement, describing it as a platform to ensure the continuity of Governor Kefas's good governance.


He enumerated some of the Governor's key accomplishments, including the timely payment of salaries and pensions, completion of previously abandoned projects, implementation of a free education policy for primary and secondary schools, and reduction of tuition fees at tertiary institutions.


Abubakar also called for the establishment of monitoring and supervisory committees to oversee the proper execution of the Governor's projects.


Prominent figures at the event included Kaigama of Kona, Mr. John Sunu, representing Kuru Kona, and Sarkin Dawaki Muri, Alhaji Aminu Umar Galadima, both of whom expressed their appreciation for Governor Kefas's efforts and the foresight of the movement's initiators.
